Avoiding money mistakes on your honeymoon

My Vacation Lady helps many engaged couples plan their dream honeymoons.  Some plan to take their honeymoons right after the wedding but a growing trend that we are seeing this year is to wait a few months to be able to really figure out what you want to do and how much money you want to budget for your honeymoon.

In this day and age, where daddy isn’t always paying for the wedding, many couples find themselves paying for part of their weddings, if not all of it.  With that huge outlay of money, sometimes, there isn’t enough for their dream honeymoons.  So what can you do?

  • Create a honeymoon registry,  For many of our couples who are already living together, rather than getting more towels or a coffee pot for the bride’s shower, they can register for honeymoon experiences.
  • Make a realistic budget.  Airfare alone is a major expense so just seeing how much airfare will cost to go to your dream honeymoon destination (like Italy or Hawaii or Tahiti) will help you eliminate some destinations that are just out of reach.
  • Plan to wait a couple of months after the wedding so that you can recoup some savings and you’ll also have some wedding gifts to use.

Here are some other ideas on how to avoid making financial mistakes on your honeymoon.
